How to skip initiator form

Jump to solution

I hope someone can help me.

I am using SharePoint 2010 with Nintex Workflow 2010 v2.3.14.0.

I have created a Custom Action on a list that executes a Nintex workflow.  This is working perfectly...however...I would like to skip the workflow initiator form that shows the 'start' (and 'cancel') button.

Am I able to bypass the initiator form and if so, how do I do it?

Many thanks,

Lee

I should do the following:

-Add a new column to your list/library named "Starter"

-Set your workflow to start when an item is changed, with a condition that evaluates "if Starter=1"

-In your Custom Action set the "Starter" column to 1

Hi Fernando,

Many thanks for your post.

Without sounding stupid, how do I do that?

The "Custom Action" only allows you to...

- Navigate to a form

- Initiate a workflow

- Navigate to a URL

...there is no option to change a column value (that will then initiate the workflow)...but I like the idea!

Many thanks,

Lee

Sorry, you are not sounding stupid. I misunderstood "Custom Action". I assumed you built a Sharepoint Custom Action, but it seems you refer to a Nintex Custom action.

Discard my answer.

Anyway I'll keep thinking on an answer for you

Lee:

Try the following:

-Goto Workflow Options

-Set FormType : Custom

-Set Start Page: Leave this field empty

-Publish your workflow

Test your custom action

Good luck

Lee,

I believe you're talking about the options for creating a custom action in either the ribbon or on the item's (ICB) menu. Though those are the listed options, you can use the Navigate to a URL to run a javascript (.js) file that can then make the item changes suggested by Fernando.

Just another option/path to take if needed.
